If you are running Mint, Eclipse and you like the Mint-X theme, you might be a bit frustrated every time you open up Eclipse. Especially with Eclipse 4.2 the design of the toolbars is pretty messed up. See the launchpad bug entry: https://bugs.launchpad.net/linuxmint/+bug/1168281
Today I stumbled over an issue that was unsolved in my workspace for some days now. Finally I got the time to fix it. I have a ECore meta-model which consists of three sub-packages and has no class in the main package. Generating model, edit and editor for this I had a nice start for my task. Then I wanted to generate code from this meta model and ran into a strange problem. On the console I simply got the following message when I tried to launch the Acceleo UI generator action:
The type of the first parameter of the main template named 'generateElement' is a proxy.
The mission: “save some bucks by using a free PBX using a cheap isdn card”. Don’t try! Buy something working in the first place. But if you have to, here is one example how it can be done. There are, for sure, many others!
